Trevi Fountain

Perhaps the world's most famous fountain (and certainly the most famous in Rome), the Trevi Fountain is a spectacular baroque masterpiece not far from the Pantheon in the city's centre. In my other Rome images I have discussed my preference for the pre-dawn blue hour as an opportunity to get nice light and few people.…

Rockpool Sunrise

A spectacular sunrise in Sydney. The Narrabeen Rockpools are a favourite spot I like to get back to from time-to-time, and although it is a bit of a hike and an early start, it has always paid off.

A Morning at the Opera

A Morning at the Opera by Des Paroz on 500px Sydney Harbour is one of the most scenic harbours in the world, at least in part due to some of the world famous landmarks like the Sydney Opera House. The image was made from Milsons Point using a Nikon 18–200mm telephoto zoom. Finding the right…
